Brookline Poetry Series
The Brookline Poetry Series is pleased to offer its reading series for 2021-22. We have a stellar line-up for the series this fall, which will take place via Zoom at our usual time, the third Sunday of each month, from 2-4 PM. Our invited poets will read, starting at 2 PM, followed by an open mic. Sign-up for the open mic will be available at 1:45 in the chat box.
Each month, you will receive a Zoom invitation in your email for the reading. Click on the link in the email and follow succeeding instructions to access the reading.
In order to receive the link for each reading, you must be on the Brookline Poetry Series mailing list. To get on the list, you may contact the organizers via email at email@example.com. Please put “Brookline Poetry Series” in the subject heading.
The Brookline Poetry Series was founded in the spring and summer of 2001 by our friend and fellow poet Diane Collins Ouellette. Diane died of cancer several months into the series, and, with her husband Berred’s support, we continued. We are guided by her original mission: a quality venue for local poets, both published and yet-to-be published; a place for a multiplicity of poetic voices; a series particularly dedicated to featuring the work of Brookline poets. In the years since, we have featured the best contemporary voices in American poetry, as well as many fine local poets.
We are dedicated to providing a forum for poets of all experience to listen and read their work. In 2005, the Boston Globe named us the Best in Boston for our open mic. We welcome all Boston-area poets to our series.
